HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - KSNB Local4 is excited to announce the addition of Sarah Bekele to the news team.

Sarah joins Spencer Schubert on the anchor desk along with meteorologist Tim Jones weeknights at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.

Sarah has shared hundreds of Nebraska stories as a reporter and anchor at KNOP-TV in North Platte since Spring 2017.

"Her experience reporting and presenting the news in North Platte means our viewers can be confident she understands what's important in Nebraska," Local4 News Director Mark Baumert said.

Her reporting experience is highlighted through her most recent flood coverage as a result of severe weather. She recalls what it was like seeing the damage left behind and how community members came together. “I learned first-hand what #NebraskaStrong really meant,” Sarah said.

Sarah is from the Midwest, growing up in both Ohio and Indiana, and has deep Ethiopian roots. She loves exploring new cultures and trying different food.

Sarah will make her on-air debut on Local4 Monday, October 7. She'll join Spencer and Tim delivering the Big4 on Local4 - the top stories in Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney plus your local forecast at 6 and 10 p.m.
